Hogs to 2-0 with easy win over North Texas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Mason Jones and Isaiah Joe each tallied 16 points as Arkansas leaned on its defense in defeating North Texas on Tuesday night at Bud Walton Arena, 66-43.

The Mean Green’s shooting matched the frigid temperatures outside. They only managed to shoot 33 percent from the field and only 12 percent from behind the arc.

North Texas (1-2) came in with an upset on their minds after taking Virginia Commonwealth to the brink last week before narrowly losing.

Jimmy Whitt, a graduate transfer from SMU who originally played for Arkansas, joined Jones and Joe in double figures with 13 after struggling in the season opener.

The Razorbacks (2-0) led 28-16 at halftime, which was the second consecutive outing that they had held their opponent under 20 points in a half.
